General Guidelines on Poster Production
Your poster should be designed to convey the essence of your research in a clear and eye-catching way, to appeal to colleagues as well as non-specialists.
The following information should be cleary visible on your poster:
- your name
- your supervisor's name
- your department
The ideal poster will:
- attract passers-by to stop and take an interest
- make a good impression
- enable the viewer to remember key details of your research (what, why, how, who?)
- encourage viewers to contact you for more information about your research
The most common poster sizes are A0 & A1.
You should ensure that your poster can be read clearly from a distance of 1 metre or more.
It should be possible for the viewer to absorb the general information in your poster in a short time (up to 3 minutes).
